NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 8, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — WHAT

The shift toward cleaner energy infrastructure means big changes for how commercial energy consumers, like restaurants, interact with utilities. GridPoint CEO Mark Danzenbaker will present at the RFMA 2022 Annual Conference and deliver valuable insight on how the restaurant industry can leverage behind-the-meter energy efficiency and demand response (DR) technology to support grid modernization and be a leader in sustainability. In addition to taking advantage of incentives offered by utilities, smart building technology reduces energy consumption and costs, allows commercial businesses to support the grid during times of need, and reduces harmful GHG emissions.

Mark will discuss how climate change, the transition to renewables and electrification trends are causing major disruptions, impacting energy reliability and costs for restaurants. Attendees will also learn how Walgreens, an early adopter of commercial DR, implements this technology to support the grid in times of emergency, like the 2020 California blackouts.
